Anyhow, I made this a couple of weeks ago when my mother in law came to visit. She eats fairly healthily, so I didn't want to send her into a diabetic coma with a lot of cookies or sugar. This time I used homegrown (well, my father in law's home grown) yellow squash and zucchini, so it was maybe a little sweeter than normal but it's all I had. I thought it was fabulous.
makes 2 loaves
3 c shredded zucchini (or combo summer squash/zucchini)
1-1/2 c sugar
1/2 c canola oil
4 eggs (or 3 eggs + 1 Tbl flax seed + 3 Tbl water)
3 c flour (I used half whole wheat)
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
- Heat oven to 350*
- Grease, bottoms only, of two loaf pans.
- In large bowl, mix zucchini sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Pour into pans.
- Bake 50-60 minutes.
- When cool, freeze one and enjoy the other. I like to eat it warm with a little butter on top.
